Match Preview

Ayr duo missing for key encounter Ayr head into their clash with Forfar desperate to make it four wins in a row. However, their hopes of securing a victory that would reduce leaders Livingston's lead at the summit of the Scottish Second Division are hampered by Bobby Donnelly and Dean Keenan being sidelined. Given they have a further two games in hand over the Lions and are set to tackle them twice before the end of the season, the Honest Men are very much in the title race. Manager Brian Reid said: "In our last two games, we have not played well but have won and at this stage of the season, you have to accept that. "Forfar will be looking to bounce back after losing on Saturday so we need to be ready for that." Forfar welcome back Jamie Bishop for the trip. The defender missed Saturday's 4-0 loss to Livingston as he was suspended but returns as the Loons look to consolidate fourth place. Full-back Stephen Tulloch remains sidelined through injury, while Iain Campbell and Martyn Fotheringham face late fitness tests. Manager Ian Campbell has urged his side to bounce back from the weekend's heavy defeat. "Saturday was not like us at all as we gave away goals very cheaply," he said. "Credit to Livingston for taking their chances but we let ourselves down. "Ayr will be coming out highly motivated so our players will be lifted by the challenge of getting full points at Somerset Park."

Match Report

Forfar win on West Coast Forfar strengthened their play-off claims in Division Two with a 1-0 win over fellow promotion-chasers Ayr. Bryan Deasley rifled home from the edge of the penalty area with just four minutes remaining to hand the away side victory in a tentative contest. Alan Trouten and Mark Roberts had speculative early efforts saved by Scott Gallacher before Michael Moffat brought the best out of the Forfar goalkeeper as he had to tip over an 18-yard shot. The visitors looked short of ideas in the first-half but Ryan Dow was making a nuisance of himself up-front without ever really troubling home-stopper Alan Martin. Ayr midfielder William Easton saw a couple of good efforts saved in the early stages of the second-half but neither side could find a breakthrough until Beasley struck to seal the contest.
